WATCH: Dan Stevens Talks Broadway’s ‘Hangmen’ and More on ‘TODAY’


Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey, Beauty and the Beast), quite appropriately introduced as “an actor with serious range,” appeared on NBC’s TODAY this morning.

Stevens joined the third hour of the show to sit down and discuss his return to Broadway in Martin McDonagh’s (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) award-winning comedy Hangmen, among other things.

Hangmen, which takes place in 1965 when the death penalty was abolished in the United Kingdom, originally had its world premiere at the Royal Court Theatre in 2015; the show was met with positive reviews from critics and won several awards. Stevens portrays the mysterious Peter Mooney in the Broadway debut of the show, which began previews on February 28.

Stevens was also inevitably asked about his dearly beloved and sorely missed character from Downton Abbey. It seems we’ve perhaps reached the conclusion of the 7-year Matthew Crawley apology tour … and Stevens assures he’s gotten a bit better at driving now.

Check out the full video below, in which Stevens also discusses Beauty and the Beast and working with Harrison Ford on Call of the Wild.

Tickets for Hangmen are currently on sale, and the show will run through July 18. Fans of Stevens can also catch him in Call of the Wild, which is in theaters now, and Blithe Spirit, which is coming to theaters in the UK on May 1.

Lindsey joined the Nerds and Beyond team in 2018. If she's not writing or out and about with her camera, she's probably watching anime, nerding out over Star Wars, reading manga, and definitely forgetting to water her plants. And waiting for the Genshin loading screen to pop up. Contact:
